Cal/Mag is one of the most soluble forms of calcium since it’s a fully reacted mineral chelate. Our Calcium bis-glycinate is nearly 200% more absorbable than calcium citrate.
Choosing a good calcium supplement can be confusing at times. There are several different calcium preparations and hundreds of different formulations available. Most calcium supplements contain calcium citrate, calcium carbonate, or calcium phosphate. These calcium preparations differ in a number of ways, and recent research has shown that calcium bis-glycinate offers benefits that other calcium sources do not.

Calcium Bis-Glycinate is one of the most soluble forms of calcium since it’s a fully reacted mineral chelate. In simple terms, when calcium is bound to glycine to form calcium bis-glycinate, it becomes an amino acid chelate that can be utilized throughout the body. Chelated means “firmly attached.” Amino acids such as glycine effectively enhance calcium absorption. For every one molecule of calcium there are two molecules of glycine in Oregon Health’s Calcium Bis-Glycinate. That explains why calcium bis-glycinate is nearly 200% more absorbable than calcium citrate.
Signs of Calcium deficiency may include:
Back or neck pain, which can be severe because of spinal bone fractures
Bone pain or tenderness
Fracture that occurs with little or no trauma
Loss of height
Stooped posture due to kyphosis (abnormal curving of the spine and humpback)
Calcium deficiency may cause aching joints, brittle nails, eczema, elevated blood cholesterol, heart palpitations, high blood pressure, insomnia, muscle cramps, nervousness, numbness in arms/legs, rheumatoid arthritis, and tooth decay.
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body. Calcium has long been recognized for its ability to keep bones healthy and strong. Calcium also maintains a regular heartbeat and transmission of nerve impulses, lowers cholesterol levels, and helps prevent cardiovascular disease. Most Americans believe they are getting enough calcium through their diet. However, more than 75% of Americans are calcium deficient according to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Calcium deficiency is mainly due to the lack of calcium rich foods. Also, added ingredients in processed food such as phytate interfere with calcium absorption. When blood calcium levels drop too low, this vital mineral is "borrowed” from the bones. It is then returned to the bones if an adequate amount of calcium is supplied through the diet.
